Scarlett Johansson (Don Jon) stars as an alien seductress in the 2013 existential science fiction thriller Under the Skin, directed by Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth).

In the film, a voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again.

Based on the novel by Michel Faber, Under the Skin examines human experience from the perspective of an alien heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

Released in limited distribution to U.S. theaters in April, 2014, the R-rated film was nominated for the Golden Lion award at the 2013 Venice Film Festival and four awards at the 2013 British Independent Film Awards, including Best Actress and Best Director.

The Blu-ray and DVD include a making-of featurette as a bonus feature.
